Its Raining Cats & Dogs literally today as we shift our attentions to the smaller cats with the less pointy teeth and their best friends, or it that mans best friend the dogs!
We put our very latest coats to the test with our breeders taking to the polls and voting for their favourite Clydes, Arabians and Shetlands new coats. We had a great turn out with the results taking the following shape:
1st - Black Arabian = 25 points
2st - White Arabian = 23 points
3rd - Bay Arabian = 13 points
4th - Gray Arabian = 12 points
5th - Sorrel Arabian = 8 points
Two clear front runners with only 1 point separating 3rd from 4th with the Sorrel just missing out on a top 3 spot to the cremello by one point. The race for first wasn’t an easy battle either with the results flip flopping as the notecards were counted.
Maybe you think your favourite should have won but you didn’t vote. Well make it right and get voting on the latest line up at the oYo Inworldz Reception Area.
1st - Black Clydes = 25 points
2nd - Seal-Bay Clyde = 23 points
3rd - Strawberry Clyde = 17 points
4th - Bay Clyde = 6 points
5th - Chestnut Clyde = 1 point
Top 2 changed as the votes were being counted all the time, but sadly only 1 person had some love for the chestnut.
1st - Chocolate Shetland = 21 points
2nd - Black Shetland = 19 points
3rd - Cremello Shetland = 18 points
4th - Sorrel Shetland = 17 points
5th - Silver Shetland = 10 points
6th - White Shetland = 9 points
7th - Beige Shetland = 5 points
It’s very close at the top
Day 1 - Breeders Fayre stars with a Bang!
We kicked off our 3rd annual inworldz breeders fayre on Sunday with a 2 hour long dance-athon with DJ Glom. Martin is a long time oYo breeder and set the bar high for the rest of the week with his fantastic dance remixes. Whie we were dancing our glowsticks off we raised some funds for RFL with donations coming in fast from party goers. We also ran a contest with 3k on the board for a Best In Animal theme and we matched that donation in the pot for RFL.
We had 1 lucky winner, Jewel, who took a huge chunk of the prize pot with 3 fantastic runner ups taking the rest of the spoils Pebea, Pan and Phayze.
1st - Black Roan = 50 points
2nd - Blue Roan = 48 points
3rd - Red Roan = 28 points
So you can see not much at all in the position for first place with black just nipping it from blue.
1st - Red Walker = 49 points
2nd - Sepia Walker = 37 points
3rd - Black Walker = 32 points
4th - Brown Walker = 8 points
That poor brown walker bringing up the rear.
Maybe you didn’t vote and your vote could have made all the difference, don’t miss out on other votes and visit the reception area today for the next round of voting.
Results are in:
Your top Roans are - 1st Black, 2nd Blue, 3rd Red.
Pebea Destiny was our lucky random draw winner.
Your top Walkers are - 1st Red, 2nd Sepia, 3rd Black.
On Monday we had 8 fresh new faces join our auctioneering family.
Congratulations to our 8 new certified oYo Auctioneers and see you out there for those big game sales!
Dear oYo Community,
It is with a huge smile on our face’s and a warmth in our heart’s that we can confirm we raised a HUGE.... 221000 iz in todays Pre-season Auction which is equal to 391USD for RFL!
That’s over 220k in the pot for the start of this seasons RFL campaign. That makes me wonder what heights we can reach during the season... I look forward in finding out.
Thank you all so much you guys are amazing.
dear oYo family,
We all were in shock after the terror attack of Manchester. Especially the fact that many young people and even kids were innocent victims made us very sad. Alfredo was the one that did express his feelings quickly by making a special coat for the oYo Horses that we released as special edition in order to give a visible sign against terror and violence, and of course to raise some funds to express our support for all survivors, their families and the people that were involved to save and heal the wounds of the attack.
We are overwhelmed from the result of the campaign: The sales of the Limited editions horses, the auctions of the OOAK and several breedables that were donated and the many donations we collected in the donation boxes was a big surprise for all of us.
We finished this round of bear voting with some of the special release coats we have had, including the tattoo and spice bears. There was an outright favourite that everyone seemed to love with not much between 2-4th. The results were:
1st - Black Tattoo Bear = 30 points
2nd - Hot Secrets Bear = 19 points
3rd - Valentine Bear = 16 points
The Arabian horses took to the voting platform for all the breeders to judge just who their favourite was. We had a record number of votes for this round with the full results as follows:
1st - White Arabian = 49 points.
2nd - Silver Arabian = 35 points.
3rd - Black Arabian = 32 points.
4th - Brown Arabian = 23 points.
5th - Beige Arabian = 14 points.
So we have an outright winner way out in front with alot of love for that White Arabian coat and not much between second and third. Maybe you missed out and your vote could have changed things, well make sure you vote for the current horses on display over at the reception area.
